A woman who said she became hospitalized after drinking well water from a local restaurant has filed suit.
Tina Rogers is suing the River Drifter Restaurant on Suck Creek Road and its owners, Charles and Renee Eich, as well as property owner Robert L. Newman.
The Circuit Court complaint seeks to be declared a class action lawsuit and include others who became ill from drinking the water, attorney Bo Hixson of the firm of Evans Harrison Hackett said.
The Health Department said other individuals reported becoming ill from drinking the same water.
Ms. Rogers said she ate at the restaurant on Aug. 4 and drank the water, not knowing it was well water and might contain contaminants.
She said she had to go to the hospital afterward after becoming very ill.
The suit asks unspecified damages.
The Eichs formerly operated Cheeburger Cheeburger near the Aquarium.
